Windows Insider Build 18836 (20H1) Released to Skip Ahead: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18836 | Windows Experience Blog.

Edit Note:  Subject edited and adding the following explanation from the referenced blog:

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing a new build to Insiders who have opted into Skip Ahead. These builds are from the 20H1 development branch. Some things we are working on in 20H1 require a longer lead time. We will begin releasing 19H2 bits to Insiders later this spring after we get 19H1 nearly finished and ready; once 19H1 is “nearly finished and ready” we’ll also use the Release Preview ring for previews of drivers and quality updates on 19H1.

Excellent news!  I'm so glad winchester73's suggestion solved the problem and saved the school a computer. 

(With the Sysnative Forum migration over the weekend from vBulletin to XenForo forum software, there are still custom settings to be made.  The custom smilies are a low priority.)

Windows Insider Preview Build 18334 Released to Fast Ring:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18334 | Windows Experience Blog.

The only "new" item in this build is "Gaming Improvements".  Otherwise, be sure to check Known Issues along with a long list of fixes.

Is her home computer and the other school computers also Windows 10?  What different versions of Microsoft Office besides that specific computer with Office 365?

Unlike a lot of people I know, I've never been fond of IE.  I've never even used it on Windows 10. Rather, I stick with both Pale Moon and Microsoft Edge (along with keeping programs updated, careful surfing and ad-blocking).

Here's the "official explanation from Windows 10 update history:


February 4, 2019 9:45 PM PST

“The Windows Update service was impacted by a data corruption issue in an external DNS service provider global outage on January 29, 2019. The issue was resolved on the same day and Windows Update is now operating normally, but a few customers have continued to report issues connecting to the Windows Update service. We expect these issues will go away as downstream DNS servers are updated with the corrected Windows Update DNS entries.”

Sad that it took so long to get it fixed but excellent news! 

Distribution of Firefox 65 has been resumed, per the updated bug report comment at

(In reply to Ryan VanderMeulen [:RyanVM] from comment #15)

    Hi Lukas, our users updating to Firefox 65 with Avast & AVG installed have been encountering this error with regularity since we launched on Tuesday. We've temporarily halted all automatic updates on Windows to avoid further exacerbating the issue. Have you gotten reports on your end and if so, do you have any ideas what might be happening from your perspective?


Hi Ryan, Firefox HTTPS filtering will be completely disabled by the new virus engine update (eta 2 hours from now) in avast/avg products. We are working on the proper fix. Thnx, David
